IP: Adding To The Popularity Of ITC Proceedings
The ITC offers patent holders quick results and injunctive relief.
July 3, 2012
The International Trade Commission (ITC) has become an increasingly popular forum for resolution of patent disputes. Matters move relatively quickly from investigation to decision at the ITC. As a result, generally accepted wisdom holds that speed is the ITC's primary benefit when it comes to patent infringement matters. In fact, the ITC has a statutory mandate to resolve investigations "at the earliest practicable time" (usually, within 15 months).
